12 balls


  • 22 Medjool dates, pitted

  • cup finely chopped almonds, divided

  • ½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut

  • cup pumpkin puree

  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Combine dates, 1/3 cup almonds, coconut, pumpkin puree, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in a food processor. Blend until well combined. Roll spoonfuls of mixture into balls between your palms; place on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet.

  2. Place remaining 1/3 cup almonds on a plate. Roll balls in the almonds until coated. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set, at least 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

Use 1/3 cup shaved dark chocolate in place of cocoa powder if desired.

If you want a creamier texture, blend in more pumpkin puree. If you want it drier, add more coconut.
